A few weeks ago we had the honour of hosting George Reilly, long-time psychotherapist, for a morning workshop on Bioenergetics, a way of moving to bring deeper emotions and tensions into awareness.
With profound gentleness, George led us through simple exercises followed by questions, ending with the opportunity to lie on a mattress and kick arms and legs in a release of old feelings that resulted in a rush of warmth in the chest. Apparently the founder of Bioenergetics used this daily and lived well into his nineties. . .
We were so pleased with his presentation, that we immediately invited George back for more. You can experience his introduction to Bioenergetics at the Learning Centre on Sunday, Oct 17 from 9:30am to noon (cost is $40) and during the Mind-Body Healing Retreat Nov 19-21.
